This past week has been a rough one. The side effects from the medications and progesterone have made me feel miserable. Because my blood tests showed I'm ovulating on my own this cycle, my fertility clinic had me start giving myself the progesterone. Plus, they said the Clomid lowers your progesterone, so they want to make sure I stay on the higher end. They also have me eating pineapple core, which doesn't taste too bad. Progesterone and I hate each other. I took the oral progesterone last time before my last miscarriage. The side effects I had during it weren't as bad, but this time around it's a whole new ball game, and my doctor says I can't take the oral prescription. So I'll follow doctors orders and keep giving myself the progesterone every night at the same time. I have to lay down immediately after, because it makes me so dizzy and I basically pass out and fall asleep 5 minutes later. I have the most terrible headaches, shakiness, muscle twitches, hot flashes, freezing, nausea, exhaustion, dizziness and pain. But you know what??? It won't last forever and it will all be worth it in the end. I'm still just waiting to see how my body is responding to the medications. My ultrasound still wasn't showing us the same results as my blood tests, so I'm just suppose to continue with the monitoring, medications and labs through this cycle and the next until we get the results we want.
